At the IHOF, a girl with wings on her dress and the punk couple walk past The Flash and Gale, who says, "Interesting crowd." Shut up, Gale. The Flash tells her to secure the cash register. Like, ha ha. Not.
A shot of a couple dancing pans over to a fidgety Jack sitting at a table with Ethan "Gayoda" Brody. "Hey, can you believe we wore the same thing?" Ethan says, and cracks himself up, but when Jack doesn't laugh, Ethan sighs, "Yeah, well, I thought it was pretty funny." That was pretty funny, especially coming from Gayoda. ["I'll cop to a snicker." -- Wing Chun] Jack doesn't answer, just sighs himself. Ethan says sort of snottily that he won't ask Jack to dance with him, "if that's what [he's] worried about." Jack denies worrying about anything. Just then, Jen and Henry appear -- Jen has a champagne-colored gown on and her hair in ringlets, and she looks very nice -- followed by Dawson and Joey, and Jack looks really relieved to see his other friends. The other couples sit down with Jack and Ethan, and Jen compliments Joey on the earrings, and Joey thanks her; Dawson beams at Joey with proprietary pride. Just then, outside the shot, we hear Jack greeting Andie and Pacey, and Joey looks up and quickly tries to hide her crestfallenness just before we cut to a shot of Andie, who's wearing a cheap-looking lilac satin shift and way way too much lavender-y eye make-up, and Pacey, standing behind her and clearly wishing for a hole to open up and swallow him. Dawson whips it out and marks Joey with urine by asking, "Shall we dance?" Joey nods, but as she gets up, she shoots Pacey an "oy vey" look. In the background, an ovary murders Tom Jones's "It's Not Unusual." Pacey and Andie sit down, and Andie and Jen compliment each other on their dresses; Pacey stares glumly at Joey and Dawson dancing, and Joey looks sadly past Dawson's giant head at Pacey and then looks away.
